AmeriCorps Works for Disaster Services

Whenever and wherever disasters strike, destruction and confusion trail in their wake. AmeriCorps and national service members trained in disaster response are proving to be a valuable and cost-efficient resource for America as they help victims and survivors begin to rebuild their lives.

Our Programs

Each year, more than 5 million individuals of all ages and backgrounds help meet local needs through a wide array of service opportunities through the Corporation for National and Community Service's core programs: AmeriCorps, Senior Corps, and the Social Innovation Fund. These programs and others, such as the Volunteer Generation Fund, support projects in six priority areas: disaster services, economic opportunity, education, environmental stewardship, healthy futures, and veterans and military families.

The final deadline to submit your application to serve with FEMA Corps as a Winter 2015 corps member is October 1st, 2014.  

The Segal AmeriCorps Education Award is a post-service benefit received by participants who  complete a term of national service in an approved AmeriCorps program--AmeriCorps VISTA, AmeriCorps NCCC, or AmeriCorps State and National. The award is named after Eli Segal, one of the pioneers of the national service movement and the first CEO of the federal Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS).

Current Funding Opportunities

The Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS) provides grants to national and local nonprofits, schools, government agencies, faith-based and other community organizations and other groups committed to strengthening their communities through volunteering.

Under the Serve America Act (SAA), all grantees must conduct National Service Criminal History checks on participants and program employees in AmeriCorps, Foster Grandparents, Senior Companions, and any other programs funded by the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS) under National Service laws.

National Service Criminal History check regulations have been in effect since November 2007 when two-part checks were first required under specific programs, and only on individuals in recurring contact with a vulnerable population.

The Advisory Board:  1) advise the director and staff on policy and programs; 2) assist in developing a long-term strategy; 3) facilitate the pooling of national, state and local resources; 4) review program progress and direction; and 5) assist in evaluating the program.
